MT2168 Pick & Place Handler.

Multitest, a designer and manufacturer of final test handlers, contactors and load boards used by integrated device manufacturers (IDMs) and final test subcontractors worldwide, congratulates Sigurd Microelectronics Corporation (Sigurd) for being the first user of the innovative MT2168 pick-and-place handler in volume production in Taiwan.

Sigurd, a well-established, independent provider of semiconductor assembly and test services, is known for being a pioneer in using new IC assembly and test equipment and technologies. Responding to the market requirements, Sigurd continuously improves and upgrades its technology and equipment base.

The recently installed MT2168 ambient-hot pick-and-place handler is used for a hot test application of various small QFN packages. Using the handler in a high-volume environment, Sigurd decided on the fully automated, 16 contact site version of the scalable platform.

After running production tests for several weeks, Sigurd experienced the significant advantages of the optimized test cell utilization. Excellent handler jam rates and the high soak buffer design allow the company to almost double its daily output.
